NOBODY TOLD ME THIS WAS COCAINE BARRY LYNDON!!!
It took me 28 years to watch this movie because my dad wrote and directed it and I knew there were a lot of threesomes, but I'm glad I finally watched it because 1) I got to see David Duchovny with a mullet and 2) that shit was dark and moving as fuck.
The shot where a football game on the jail TV turns into the angel gabriel playing his trumpet and it's framed through the cell bars??? *chef's kiss*
EDIT: IT TURNS OUT THOSE ARE MY DAD'S HANDS PLAYING TRUMPET AS THE ANGEL GABRIEL LMFAOOOOO
“BUT DON’T YOU FIND IT A BIT CHILLY WITHOUT A… GUN, ELIZABETH?”
WHAT AN ABSOLUTE TREAT!!! This was one of my favorites as a kid but I haven’t seen it since I was like 12 and good lord is it still the funniest goddamned movie ever made.

Am I Nan?
Yes, you are Nan.
Remarkable. Stellar performances (Kila Lord Cassidy is OUTSTANDING), stunning cinematography (the dissolve where the mountains turn into Anna on the bed?? POETIC CINEMA!), and a script filled with exchanges that took my breath away and my poor heart for a RIDE.
Loved the very odd/striking decision to open and close with the set, and an acknowledgement that you, the viewer, are watching a movie. It worked. It worked?? Yeah, it actually worked. Because…
